The Bills needed some camp depth along the offensive line

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Training Camp Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills bolstered the depth along their interior offensive line on Thursday, signing offensive lineman Nico Siragusa. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Siragusa, 25, was a fourth-round draft choice of the Baltimore Ravens in 2017. He was expected to compete for a reserve role that year, but he tore his ACL, MCL, and PCL during practice on August 1, 2017, thereby ending his rookie season. He did not make the Ravens’ 53-man roster in 2018, but he was re-signed to the team’s practice squad after they waived him. He spent the entire 2018 season on the practice squad before he was signed to the Green Bay Packers’ active roster on December 12. He remained with the Packers through the 2019 NFL Draft, but the team waived him on April 29 of this year. The Indianapolis Colts signed Siragusa on June 4, but waived him just prior to the opening of training camp on July 24.

To date, Siragusa has not appeared in an NFL game. While he shares a surname with former NFL defensive tackle Tony Siragusa, the two are not related. Nico Siragusa played college football at San Diego State University.

After guard Isaac Asiata announced his retirement and center Mitch Morse entered concussion protocol on Tuesday, and swing tackle Jeremiah Sirles was released with an injury settlement on Wednesday, the Bills were in need of some depth along the offensive line. The team now has 15 offensive linemen in camp including Morse.
